Workout Log 15 Oct 2012

20 minute free dance with weights to Journey to the Line, L’Enfant, Christ Lag and Kunst der Fuge. Now in a bit of pain but based on yesterday’s experience I need to shower up and haul ass to the cafe.

The real TV brains pick at a father’s dignity and do not allow him a meaningful disciplinary role making him a joke by the time the kids are 14 because they’ve seen too many horror movies.
